A Naughty Sweet Tooth

A Naughty Sweet Tooth

I am walking empty streets

Looking for a lost news sheet

For the information about me

That I saw nailed to yesterday’s Christmas tree

There must be a meeting place

For one’s like me, hiding in disgrace

Who have eaten too many cakes

And are addicted to the sweetest bakes

Where do I find Cake-oholics Anonymous?

I need to be saved from my wantonness

So I can re-float my over loaded Nautilus

Surely I am not the only one?

With a naughty sweet tooth in the gun.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Sweet, Sweet-Ivor!!! 🙂
    Ha! This is a yummy poem with delicious photos!
    I’d put some of that in the freezer and eat later in the year. 🙂
    Fruit cake is one of the few cakes I love…and most people don’t even like fruit cakes. But, I didn’t get any this past Christmas. Darn. And I missed it. Thought about it. Drooled thinking about it. Ha! 😉 Yum. 😉 🙂
    (((HUGS))) and Hang On!!! 🙂

    1. Haha… I’m pacing myself slowly and savouring every piece… piece by piece, morsel by morsel, crumb by crumb…. freezing some is not in the equation… and of course Carole loved fruit Cakes too…. which then had me reminiscing about the wonderful family Christmas festivities we did have… and today I wrote a poem ”We Always Did”…I didn’t mean too.. I wasn’t go too… but it happened… 💚💛💙🤎😀 ((Hugs))
